Crochet Vest with Shawl Collar

I got this pattern from Bernat today.  I just love it and want to make it.  I've never crocheted an article of clothing for me (although have made them for others).  It is made using Bernat Satin, which I love, it is so soft and well...satiny.

While I like the color on the model, I'd be more likely to make it in purple or an off white maybe.  I tried and tried to find the pattern on Bernat's website so I could pin it to my Pinterst acount, but sadly I couldn't find it on their website.

So, I thought I would just post the photo and a link to the .pdf (that I receive in my e-mail) here (even though I WILL not start a new project until my afghan is finished)

The pattern can be found HERE

9/11 Remembrance - 10 Years

Who knew that morning, 10 years ago, when we woke up that day that all of our lives would change forever?


You say you will never forget where you were when
you heard the news On September 11, 2001.

Neither will I.

I was on the 110th floor in a smoke filled room
with a man who called his wife to say 'Good-Bye.'
I held his fingers steady as he dialed. I gave him the
peace to say, 'Honey, I am not going to make it, but it
is OK... I am ready to go.'
I was with his wife when he called as she fed
breakfast to their children. I held her up as she
tried to understand his words and as she realized
he wasn't coming home that night.

I was in the stairwell of the 23rd floor when a
woman cried out to Me for help.
'I have been knocking on the door of your heart for 50 years!' I said.
'Of course I will show you the way home - only believe in Me now.'

I was at the base of the building with the Priest
ministering to the injured and devastated souls.
I took him home to tend to his Flock in Heaven.
He heard my voice and answered.

I was on all four of those planes, in every seat,
with every prayer. I was with the crew as they
were overtaken. I was in the very hearts of the
believers there, comforting and assuring them that their
faith has saved them.

I was in Texas , Virginia , California , Michigan , Afghanistan .
I was standing next to you when you heard the terrible news.
Did you sense Me?

I want you to know that I saw every face. I knew
every name - though not all knew Me.
Some met Me for the first time on the 86th floor.
Some sought Me with their last breath.
Some couldn't hear Me calling to them through the
smoke and flames; 'Come to Me... this way... take
my hand.' Some chose, for the final time, to ignore Me.

But, I was there.

I did not place you in the Tower that day.
You may not know why, but I do. However, if you were
there in that explosive moment in time,
would you have reached for Me?

Sept. 11, 2001, was not the end of the journey
for you. But someday your journey will end.
And I will be there for you as well.
Seek Me now while I may be found.

Then, at any moment, you know you are 'ready to go.'
I will be in the stairwell of your final moments.

BrainStrong Commercial

This commercial is so funny to me - I guess because it is very much like me. But unlike what the dog "thinks", sometimes it really does help to walk out and come back in the room - haha !

I wonder if this stuff is any good? Maybe I should try some.

Funny Friday

I love most of the Geico commercials. I thought this one was pretty funny. I love how she says I taught my dog and HIS cockatoo (the bird isn't her's - it is her dog's bird) - LOL !!
